The full colonial experience
Congratulations! If you’re staying at Raffles we assume you’ve won the lottery or are at least on your honeymoon.
Raffles may be the iconic Singapore hotel, but its room rates warrant a special occasion. Every room is a suite with a bedroom and parlour decked out with period furnishings and oriental carpets. Personality suites evoke memories of the hotel’s famous guests like Somerset Maugham and Rudyard Kipling with old photos and memorabilia. Guest quarters are kept separate from the touristy areas of the hotel and there’s a secluded rooftop pool and garden. If there’s anything missing to complete your colonial experience simply ring the butler!
